SANILAC COUNTY (WJRT) (1/17/2020) - The Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office has canceled an advisory asking the public to look for a mother and her 3-year-old daughter, who were considered missing and endangered.

Michigan State Police say 3-year-old Alydiauna Munn and her mother, 31-year-old Tara Sheldon, were found safe on Friday. Both had been missing since 9:45 p.m. Monday.

The sheriff's office received tips that Sheldon and Munn had been seen several times during the week at a local business. Investigators obtained surveillance images from the business showing the mother and daughter.

Police shared the images with Sheldon's family, who positively identified them as having visited the business. Family members agreed that neither Sheldon nor Munn appeared to be in any distress, according to the sheriff's office.

A concerned grandfather reported them missing Thursday afternoon.

During a call with her grandfather on Monday, police say Sheldon told him her van had been broken into. She ended the call and told him she would call back, but she never did.

Police contacted several friends and acquaintances, who also had not heard from Sheldon. She hadn't come to work at the Double Tree Hotel in Port Huron or made any contact with her managers.

The sheriff's office was working with Michigan State Police and other Mid-Michigan law enforcement agencies to find Sheldon and her daughter.
